troubled musings


There is a way that appears to be right,
but in the end it leads to death.
Even in laughter the heart may ache,
and rejoicing may end in grief.

- Proverbs 14:12-13

I am blameless - I know not myself,
I loathe my life
It's all the same, and so I thought
the blameless and the wicked He destroys.

- Job 9:21-22

It is an evil business that God gave to the sons of man to busy themselves with.
- Qohelet 1:13

Instead, there were little daily miracles, illuminations, matches struck unexpectedly in the dark.
- To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf

We shall not cease from exploration,
and the end of all our exploring
will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time.

- Four Quartets by T.S. Eliot

However many years anyone may live,
let them enjoy them all.
But let them remember the days of darkness,
for there will be many.
Everything to come is meaningless.

- Qohelet 11:8
